Loyal? Maybe

Brand loyalty is the topic this week. 
This week about a brand loyalty. Is it a good thing? Bad thing? Is there a brand(s) that it would take a vast shift in the universe to get you to stop using?

I have none.  I am not loyal to anything.  There, done with the post... see ya!  Just kidding!  I am loyal to one thing, but I am equally disloyal to anything else.

I am totally loyal to my hair color.  I have been using the same brand and the same color for years.  One time they discontinued my color and it was horrible.  It took me about 6 months to figure out what color I liked.  When I did, I haven't looked back.  I buy it in bulk with coupons. 

Oh, you didn't know I color my hair?  I do, I have been prematurely grey since I was 25 years old.  I started going grey at 16, and was 75% grey at 25.  I am still about 75% grey.  There have been times when I didn't color my hair.  Like when I was pregnant.  I was 8 months pregnant with Hannah, had Mac and Sam in the cart and some asshat salesman said, isn't it nice that you are out with your grandchildren.  At that moment I decided Hannah was far enough along and I was coloring my hair.  I bought a box of dye on the way home. 

I started to color my hair when I was in my early 20's.  I ran into a friend from college at a train station in Boston.  First words out of her mouth where, OH MY GOSH you are grey.  Really?  This was a very shocking chance meeting and all she can comment on is my hair?  I decided that must be really noticeable and colored it for the first time in the hotel room.

I am very disloyal to Honda products.  We will never buy another Honda vehicle again.  I have owned 3 Hondas, and only 1 was any good.  Bob's Accord and my Odyssey were crap.  Massive pieces of unreliable junk.  I know some folks have had good luck with their Hondas, us, not so much.  I will never buy another one.  You could not make me.  There would have to be a massive shift in quality for me to ever consider a Honda again.

  1. Very interesting about your hair. I never knew that. The grandchildren comment was rude. My mom was going gray and someone asked my sister if she was her grandma. That did it for her and she started dying her hair red again.
